    Ride On A Train.

    Today is like every other day. I board the train quickly-can't be late. I choose a seat near the back. Few sit there. The light is broken, but that's fine. I don't need a light today. Alone I sit, lost in my thoughts, swirling, swirling. ..A slight noise startles me back to...

    I have come to believe

    that everything happens for a reason. All you can do is be true to who you are and hope that any obstacle or opportunity comes your way was put their for a reason. It may be to test our faith, our resolve, or trust, our patients or it may be to reward us for all the things we...

    Ive never been good at picking out guys.

    I usually choose the ones who beat me or abuse me. But today, I got to fall in love with my best friend, and I know that this relationship is real and will last for a while.

    I always try to follow what my heart says,

    but sometimes my head steps in and confuses me. My heart sometimes says one thing, while my head says something else. Sometimes I feel that I know what I want to do and then something always just steps in and says ‘NOPE’. I have many dreams and goals that I wish to meet...

    I truly do. Everything is a part of

    who you are. Even people coming into your life or crossing paths. There can even be those rare people you meet and have an instant connection and very deep bond and feelings for very quickly. One person can alter and change your life for the better.

    Everything happens for a reason.

    You, make the reason. Things happen. You, make them meaningful. Struggles happen. You, make it worth holding on. Things get taken away. You, make them worth fighting for. Life happens. You. Make it worth living.

    Recently being diagnosed with HIV is not easy.

    ...at all. Especially with the stigma out there. However, I believe this is a new door for me and I'm not going to give up on my aspirations to have a loving wife and beautiful children of my own. With today's medications it's possible. I'm not going to let my distrust of the...

    I left you... For a reason.

    For many reasons. I loved your smile, I still miss the richness and depth of your laugh, but the wall between us grew higher and thicker and hardened so that I could not shake it or break it to reach you. I started to forget how your lips felt against mine, how it felt to be...

    Dimentia (or Alzheimers),

    is a terrible disease. I just burried my 90 year and 11 month old mother a little over a week ago, and the ripples of her disease are still moving ever outward. She had been coping with increasingly progressive Dimentia for at least 15 year. I feel caring for her for 10 years...

    Respectfully, I don't believe everything happens

    for a reason. I don't believe in coincidences, but neither do I believe that everything happens for a reason. I DO believe in synchronicity--which allows us the free will to choose--always--in everything, and those choices attract synchronous energy. For example, believing...

    I feel like I'm starting all over.

    It's strange and at the same time I know it's what I need. The way things happen can always seem to suck at the time but at least I know that it only opens new doors.

    Things do happen for a reason just like

    when you first ride your bicycle and then you fall off of it, you then get up and you ride it without falling again. Or like when you first fall in love and get hurt, you love again but your then more careful
